FAQ

Why
The DanceSocks?

The DanceSocks were created out of the need to safely twist and turn in sneakers while dancing.  Sneakers are designed for forward and backward motion like running, not the pivoting required in all dance forms.  The DanceSocks go over sneakers so you can stop sticking, pivot freely and avoid injury to ankles & knees.

What type of floors do they work on?

There are two versions of The DanceSocks; full foot for carpet and half socks for smooth floors.

How long do they last?

The DanceSocks are a consumable item and will need to be replaced.  The half sock version are designed to be used on clean and well maintained floors.   How long they last depends on flooring and how often you are dancing.    The DanceSocks are made of a nylon/spandex material so check the floor and the soles of sneakers for any rocks or debris that could tear the fabric. This simple check and regular washing will prolong the life of your DanceSocks.

Are there sizes?

The DanceSocks are one size fits all for men and women. They are stretchable and designed to fit "comfortably snug" so they don't move. This is why they work! If you have difficulty adjusting them around rugged soled sneakers a helpful tip is to put the socks on your sneaker first then put your sneakers on. You still have access to your shoe laces so that won't be an issue. They can easily fit up to a size 14 for men.

How do I wear?

For smooth floors (half sock)- Pull The DanceSocks over the front of your shoe. Cover more sole to increase glide. For greater grip, pull further onto your sneaker exposing more toe. They can also fold.  The coverage you need depends on dance style, flooring and sneaker.

For Carpeted floors (full foot) - Pull the carpet DanceSock over the front of your shoe. The bottom portion is called a swivel sole and designed for durability. It should be positioned on the bottom and evenly around the sides of your sneaker. The top portion is thinner and designed to be breathable. If you need to adjust placement due so from the swivel sole. Please remember to remove before walking on smooth surfaces to avoid slipping and possible injury.

Can I wear them with dress shoes?

The DanceSocks are designed to be worn with sneakers. We do not recommend them to be worn with regular shoes including high heels.

What are they made of?

The DanceSocks are made of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. 

Are they easy to clean?

Yes, we recommend keeping the logo side up so only one side gets used. Hand wash cold, do not bleach, drip dry.

Where are they made?

The DanceSocks are 100% American made. We are thrilled to be working with a manufacturer in the USA that works with brands like DKNY, Ralph Lauren and Adidas.
